Georgina Kincaid: Succubus On Top Review

Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses her new boyfriend, she’ll drain his life force. Georgina is a succubus—a demon who draws her power from other men’s pleasure. Admittedly, the shapeshifting and immortality perks are terrific, and yes, Georgina did choose to join the ranks of hell centuries ago. But it seems completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can’t get hot and heavy with the one mortal who knows and accepts her for who she is.
It’s not just her personal life that’s in chaos. Doug, Georgina’s co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, and Georgina suspects that something far more demonic than double espressos is at work. She could use help finding out, but Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, is preoccupied in the suburbs with corrupting an ultra-conservative talk radio star—and giving Georgina some highly distracting come-hither vibes. Georgina is going to have to work solo on this one—and fast because soon, Doug’s life won’t be the only one on the line…

REVIEW(3.8/5 stars):
Second book of Georgina Kincaid series and new problems appeared. This time the book follows three plots, in a way. It's not cut in parts but there are more than one thing going on. We have Georgina's best friend coming in town,the incubus Bastien, and she needs to help him with his job, there is a weird immortal drug dealer who mess up with Georgina's friends and lastly is her relationship,with her now boyfriend, Seth. At least the last part is going smoother than the other two.

If i put it opposite of the previous book,i like it much better. I think it's usual at Mead's books to like the next ones more than the previous ones. Anyway, i think the book was more well written and since we already know most of the characters, Mead could move them easier. The plot is far more interesting,with more action and less circling around Georgina's sex life. I liked how she managed to match all the three small plots into one big one. It makes the book less boring since you change environment often.

It had one big wrong thing for me. Mead decides to leave some of the old characters, like all Georgina's immortal friends, in the corner. I got used at them at the first book and now they were a bit away from this one, for non certain reason, and i really disliked it. As i said at the review of Succubus Blues, i was expecting to learn more about them but they only appeared 2-3 times in this one. I really hope the next to be different at this certain part.

I feel like i enjoyed the book a lot. Something i didn't feel after Succubus Blues. Even i started to like Georgina more as a character! Let's see if the next books of the series will affect me the same :)
